About the Author:

Paul Goring is Professor of British Literature and Culture at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Review:

'Concept looks good ... I like the idea... they should do very well'—Lee Morgan, Head of Sales at Compass (Lee Morgan, Head of Sales at Compass)

'This looks excellent; I shall look forward to seeing the first texts.' - Jennifer Nicholson, University of Newcastle

'your new series looks interesting and timely' - Professor Elaine Treharne, University of Leicester (Chair of the English Association)

'this is a book which we would like our first years to have read - a guide which gives the information without which a student would be entirely at sea.' - Professor Lisa Hopkins, Sheffield Hallam University (from proposal)

'[this] series offers both the student reader and teacher exciting and invaluable interventions in and reorientations around questions of history, culture, and period ... With brio, verve, and an admirable brevity, the series grounds our understanding of literature and culture in thought-provoking and highly original ways. ... an indispensible series that will set the benchmark for all such surveys and overviews.' - Julian Wolfreys, Professor of Victorian Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Florida.

'[these guides will] provide what students really want/need to know when they begin a module, in a way that makes sense before they've done the module itselfàthe lack of this has really been my problem with survey books for students already on the market' - Leigh Wilson, University of Westminster (from proposal)

"With focuses on the many writers of the era and their common techniques, enhanced with a chronology of world history's major writings, Eighteenth-Century Literature and Culture is a top pick for anyone who wants to educate themselves on the era and for community library literary studies collections." —Midwest Book Review (James A. Cox)

Mentioned in list of new books out in Times Higher Educational Supplement, 24 January 2008

"...does just what it sets out to do, giving a general account of the policy and society, religion, philosophy, arts and culture of the period...before discussing the literature...indicates the kinds of interests current in studies of eighteenth century literature...makes navigation of the topics straightforward...extremely useful...gives an account of the drama of the period, which will enable students to see where any particular play that they are studying fits in...the balance between generalisation and particular details is well-managed...will help students get their bearings...on the whole the picture is well drawn and the book will be useful to any beginning student of the period or to an A level student looking for a sense of cultural context. It's worth having copies in the sixth form and English department libraries."The Use of English, Summer 2009 (Paul Goring)

Briefly reviewed in the Year's work in English Studies journal, vol 89, No. 1
'The chapter on 'Critical Approaches' particularly useful, as it gives an overview of current critical debates, and there is also a helpful glossary of literary terms and concepts'
